Understanding parallel contexts

Artists and activists from 11 countries unite in one exhibition.

Across a 46,000km coast surrounded by 22 countries, LGBTIQ+ people simultaneously enjoy civil rights, face criminal action, can legally have their gender recognised, are socially and/or legally oppressed because of their gender, go through genital mutilation at birth, live under harsh systems be it socio-economic issues, nationalism and colonialism; and this only touches the surface of the multitude of experiences and challenges. 

The Wind Blows… In All Directions is an exhibition that uses Maltese and Tunisian contexts as parallel bases, as artists and activists from 11 Mediterranean countries reflect on the past, present and future, as well as their community and their own identities with running themes of resistance through activism, gender expression, sexual liberation and self exploration throughout the exhibitions.

The Wind Blows… In All Directions runs at Spazju Kreattiv between August 11 and October 29 and is co-curated by Bobb Attard and Mohamed Ali Agrebi. The exhibition forms part of the Europride 2023 programme.
